'What's the Matter?'
We are learning how substances have physical properties that can be described. When substances are mixed, heated or cooled chemical changes may occur.
In Room 7,8 and 9 we have explored the scientific process this week and performed experiments where solids, liquids and gases change their state.
We made jelly which changed from a solid to a liquid when we added hot water, then went back to a solid when it cooled.
We turned cream into butter by shaking it in a jar for a long time!
We hypothesised that sugar might explode when we add baking soda. It didn't explode but it did fizz and bubble. Hokey Pokey is delicious and fun to make!
